Traveled with children

We chose this cruise as a family and for the Ports....Airley Beach....Cairns and Willis Island. The stop overs were fantastic... no complaints there...food on the cruise was average except for Angelo's which was to die for...having to purchase food in the dining room for indulgences such as lobster tail or sirloin steak for $29 was a joke....I have never experience this with any other cruise line...The pantry was humid and basketball court above it sounded like a game was in progress in the pantry itself. I challenge anyone to try and get a glass or a mixed drink with coke...seems the crew have been told there is only pepsi on board....not true! A shortage of duty free alcohol and smokes on board...sorry but we missed a delivery????? I have cruised a number of times before and am ashamed at what we produce as Australians.......I am an average Aussie and have cruised happily for many years with other cruise lines without complaint but will never cruise with P & O again!

Cabin Review

Cabin interior

Small but adequate....service was not good...blood on sheets at embarkation...sheets stripped by us but same sheets put back on bed....cabin desk not wiped down in 7 days...glasses used and not removed at all during cruise...baby cot dirty with ill fitting cot mattress...water bottles for baby purchased but took 3 days to get regardless of constant enquiry by mother...
